I spent my childhood on the Yorkshire moorlands, which were both beautiful and dramatic and full of magic. I try to capture some of that early childlike wonder in my work now. The sketchy approach I prefer is more about the mood of a place or the spirit of an animal, rather than an accurate depiction. My work usually starts as several graphite sketches on cartridge paper, if one feels right, I will then use that as the basis for further work; adding charcoal, oil pastel or ink. These sketches are then digitised and worked on in my studio, sometimes using creative software or simply preparing for printing. I love experimenting with new styles and different media and an increasingly larger scale work.
